it's hintonni

What medium are they growing in?

These cacti grow in the wild in pure gypsum and is not reccomended for the novice grower. This may be your problem either the first, latter, or both  :grin:.

I'd suggest cutting it back a little, letting it callous and then replant it in a pure gypsum medium, it likes it best in a greenhouse or in a window sill.

good luck.

cut it back a bit at the base, allow it to callous over, and replant it in pure gypsum, but i'd suggest adding some sand.

Then treat it like you would any other cactus, that you're waiting to root.
